"I would much rather have regrets about not doing what people said, than regretting not doing what my heart led me to do and wondering what life had been like if I'd only just been myself. "
I have a problem with forcing myself not to do what I feel I should. It's not being true to myself. And, I'm nothing if not true to myself. Otherwise I will only look back with "what if's".
I am not a fan of regret.
Today I feel fulfilled. I am happy. I am hopeful, and I don't feel like my heart is missing. I'm going on 10 days. I have my quick, panicked moments, but they pass. And the good far outweighs the bad.
